Kobe Bryant’s NBA career will come to an end Wednesday night, but not before one last tribute from the team and city he’s called home for the past 20 years.

The surefire Basketball Hall of Famer stepped onto the Staples Center floor for the final time as a player Wednesday, and the Lakers honored him with a touching tribute prior to their season finale against the Utah Jazz.

The ceremony included a video of some of the top moments in the five-time NBA champion’s storied career.

Then, NBA greats — and fans — like Magic Johnson wished the Black Mamba a fond farewell.

Johnson also  added a few more words about the Lakers legend.

What a moment.
